Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Gloucestershire Building Recording Group


The GBRG was founded in 1993. By 2014 the group had recorded 159 buildings in Gloucestershire, and around 64 buildings in the county have been precisely dated through tree‐ring dating.

Three main aims of the GBRG are:

  • To be active in the recording of buildings.
  • To encourage the publication of research on buildings.
  • To act as a hub for information on building archaeology.

Siddington Tithe Barn

Our on going recording & research helps identify what building features and types are common or rare in Gloucestershire. Also, we are starting to develop online photographic records and glossaries of period features and buildings for the County.

We are not just interested in timber‐ framed buildings. Later brick buildings have their own datable features too.
